Larry gave us a marvelous tour of the museum, providing fascinating stories of the men who are honored and those who were members of the GAR. The artifacts are right there---no big Plexiglas cases to prevent reading of the hand written (for some artifacts) descriptions. It made the museum seem more historic without the pretentious displays you find in other museums. Larry spent a lot of time looking up my partner's great-great-grandfather who fought in the Civil War and who died after his transfer to the the regular army. What a great museum for those who truly want to get a glimpse of the Civil War.

I was familiar with the GAR as ancestors had been active in it, but this museum was a surprise. The artifacts are truly extraordinary. It must be the most impressive collection of civil war artifacts in the state. And the facility is like a time capsule. It's so unassuming that you feel like you're discovering something utterly unique. Might as well be Indiana Jones in the jungles of Peru. If you care about history it's a must see!

I worked in Lynn and was able to get a tour of this historical marvel. The Hall has been preserved as it was 100+ years ago with artifacts from the civil war. This is not a highly polished attraction but more for those who love history and enjoy walking off the beaten track. When I visited, prior to 2017 I had an appointment. I don't know if that has changed over time but would certainly contact them prior to going.

almost unknown, the GAR is well worth a visit for a history buff. It is a time capsule from post civil war veteran days which shows photos of local soldiers and artifacts from the conflict.

This is a great museum. You can find Civil War members of your family. You should call ahead to make sure they are open. It is a wonder place for kids.
